Sometimes when taking pictures, things just click...
I was on my way home from town, taking the back road past my neighbor's acreage. As I drove slowly down the bumpy lane, a flash of yellow fluttered in front of me. I wanted to take the bird's picture but the little guy kept flying ahead so I put the car in park, picked up the camera and rolled down the window.
Just then the bird - a western palm warbler - lit upon the barbed wire fence right next to where I'd parked. It must have known it was time for a photo shoot.

|And one more shot of a feathery rump before the photo shoot ended.|
For the little warbler I suppose posing for my camera was a pleasant break from eating seeds and capturing bugs. As for me, I was delighted. I couldn't wait to get home so I upload 'Warbler on a wire' to my computer. I love it when things just click!
